Quick Take: Another Killingsworth For Sale?

Was this home designed by case study architect Edward Killingsworth? Not this time, but you can imagine the original owner was a fan of his work. Located on Naples Island in Long Beach (not too far from Case Study Home #25) this home has a lot of elements seen on other Killingsworth narrow-lot homes: post and beam construction, interior atrium providing light and privacy, upstairs “loft” style bedroom open to below, copious bespoke built-ins, but It was actually designed by the local architect John Dufy and Leo Dreher. This one appears in good condition, but desperately in need of style-conscious improvements and better decorating. Tired of reading about it, contact us for a showing.
